Finca la Escarcha ‘Encubierto’ Blend de Tintas 2017

La Arboleda, Mendoza, Argentina

Santiago Reta is the man behind the Rhône-infused, garagiste label Finca La Escarcha. His 64-acre vineyard is dedicated to producing wine in the style of the voluminous, aromatic whites and the dark, earthy reds of southern France. With total production under a thousand cases, only the most select blocks are dedicated to his wine.

Encubierto, the newest addition to the La Escarcha lineup, was inspired by the mischievous old fox that wanders the vineyards. Offered simply as Blend de Tintas, this young oak-aged wine offers great value and quality from the small estate.

Tasting Notes:

The Encubierto Blend de Tintas is a fresh and herbaceous wine that boasts deep aromas of tobacco and black pepper that open to soft raspberry flavors on the palate. Both elegant and expressive, the round, polished tannins are balanced wonderfully with acidity and notes of fresh, ripe black fruits.

The rich flavor and noticeable tannins in this wine make it an excellent choice to match with steak, rich grilled meats and peppery sauces.
